Warming Trend For KELOLAND

December 13, 2013, 6:16 PM by Brian Karstens

Warming Trend For KELOLAND

Considering we've been over 10 degrees below normal so far this December, any temperature resembling near normal weather looks pretty good. 

Yesterday, highs reached into the 20s and 30s in many areas, and this is a sign of things to come next week.

Winter time weather usually features a battle between arctic air and Pacific air. The jet stream pattern is finally showing signs of an improving pattern as the arctic temperatures retreat into Canada. Still, we are fighting a number of factors that will minimize some of the warming.

First, a deeper snow cover of 3-7" over eastern KELOLAND will insulate the ground level temperatures from getting too warm unless we get into a period of breezy weather. Less snow West River will aid the warming trend in Rapid City.  

Also remember the sun angle is reaching its lowest point in the sky next week, which doesn't help a warmer temperature trend.

But after a so much subzero weather, relief from the bitter cold will be welcomed by most.
